It's a bottleneck up there. Pictures shown a couple of weeks ago. Too many being given passes apparently.
Yes, the world is getting too crowded, but we ( the people of the world)have also been encouraged to spend money on tourism and leisure pursuits. One way of keeping the world spinning on dollars.
So many more people are travelling now far beyond Torremolinos , but the awful thing is, when one place is spoilt big hotel groups move onto the next beautiful place. Prime example is Madeira. Once a beautiful island with only a couple of hotels. It's very different now.
Venice is something different from all accounts. There can be numerous ships in at the same time and I think the volume of people is in fact leading to the crumbling and destruction . Just what I was told.
